“best bbq west of texas!!!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2013

.....of course.... TEXAS' true religion is BBQ.....it's a crime for the health dept. to make bbq joints clean their pits....that's why the flavor is OUT OF THIS WORLD.....but if you are motoring west and need a Q fix.......TONY ROMAS is just the ticket!!!!

“Awful coffe, tea, and they loose credit cards”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2011

Only restaurant I have ever not got my credit card back and it happened twice. The onion rings are OK, but the burgers are dry, the ribs so so, and the BBQ chicken is average. I liked the cole slaw and beans but that isn't a meal. They don't filter their water and in Glendale, they tap water makes for very bad drinks.

“Reasonable choice for their type of fare”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2011

Parking best (and easiest) at lot across street. Decor tasteful. Service average. Menu varied. Portions ample, reasonably tasty. Curiously, no prices listed with menu at website.

“Ribs R Great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2011

I always enjoy going to Tony Roma's. Ribs are tender and sauce is delicious. Great for a date or a party. Good portions and very friendly staff. Never have to wait too long for seating or food. Great place to eat ribs!! S.D. Glendale, Ca
